Description Salman Zafar 2003-11-12 11:57:23 EST
Description of problem: 
After I did performed up2date for first time in RedHat9, I encountered the 
"respawning too fast:disabled for 5 minutes" problem which I somehow 
fixed after learning ftom internet.  
Anyway also I upgraded my kernel as part of up2date, however since then I 
have faced 3 times my system to be hanging. however i figured out system is 
not hanging, i can remotely login and kill X server, then the system could be 
back to normal.  
So basically my X server seems to be hanging, no mouse/keyboard input is 
working and then after killing X server (process /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 -auth 
/var/gdm/:0.Xauth vt7) then the system was ok. 
Pls. investigate and fix the problem.

Doesn't seem like an up2date bug, re-assigning.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-11-17 07:57:13 EST
Attach your X server log and config file, and /var/log/messages
from the time of a crash, to the bug report using the bugzilla
file attachment mechanism.
